Honda CR-V stands for Comfortable Runabout Vehicle. As the name suggests, Honda CR-V is a compact crossover that has proved itself to be a great and worthy choice for modern Filipino families living in the urban jungle. The Philippines saw the beginning of the Honda CR-V in the 90s. Since then, the CR-V has been one of the popular Honda vehicles in the country. Now, Honda Cars Philippines Inc introduced the facelifted CR-V that debuted alongside the new City. The new Honda CR-V builds on the successful formula established by the current model, which is why the changes are minimal yet distinct.

The top-spec CR-V is offered with Honda Sensing driver-assist technology that includes the following: Adaptive Cruise Control, Low-Speed Follow, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane-Keep Assist System, Road Departure Mitigation, Forward Collision Warning, and Lane Departure Warning.
